Troy man facing burglary charges

A Troy man is facing burglary charges after police say he broke into a home and stole two handguns.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, police were contacted by a man at about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday morning who said he saw a car leaving his neighbor’s house in a suspicious manner. The man recognized the driver as Colin Blane Gunnells, 27, 0f 1224 Hamilton Rd. in Troy, and saw that the door to the carport was open when Gunnells was leaving.

According to the report, investigators made contact with Gunnells mother, who gave investigators her phone to contact Gunnells. Gunnells agreed to meet investigators at his mother’s house. When he arrived at his mother’s house, Gunnell admitted to burglarizing the home and stealing two handguns. Gunnells told investigators that he stashed the two guns on the side of the road while he was on his way to his mother’s house. Gunnells took investigators to the place where he stashed the guns and the guns were recovered. A search of Gunnells’ car revealed a pry bar with paint on it matching the door where Gunnells says he entered the home.

According to the report, the homeowner arrived at his home where he confirmed that the only items stolen were the two handguns. The weapons were returned to him after they came back clear from NCIC.

Gunnells has been charged with burglary, larceny, malicious damage to real property and possession of tools capable of being used in a crime.
